Form And Layer
October 11, 2020 – October 17, 2020
During this workshop students will explore various handbuilding methods constructing layered textures to form sculptural structures. Coil building, press-mold casting, the dowel method and pinching will be demonstrated to create multiple parts. During class you will construct an abstract, figurative or layered small-scale sculpture with innovative, hand-built components. Discussions will focus on different types of handbuilding clay recipes, oxides, and slips and glazes related to firing schedules. Bring your sketchbook to engage in an exciting perspective on form and pattern. Pieces will be bisque fired only. Open to all skill levels, however some prior experience in clay is helpful.
